Sony is hosting another State of Play broadcast this afternoon. This time around, the stream will be focused on the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima, Sucker Punch Productions' samurai action game that's due out on July 17.
According to the PlayStation blog, we'll be getting a new look at gameplay from Ghost of Tsushima, including combat and exploration. PlayStation's current cut is clocking about 18 minutes or so of gameplay.
Sony's also stressing that no PlayStation 5 news or updates will be part of today's State of Play. The stream will be focused solely on the upcoming PlayStation 4 game, though that probably won't give any pause to the spam in chat.
Today's stream is focused on the current generation, but Sony's still building up to the next generation of console hardware. So far, we've only seen the DualSense, the PlayStation 5's new controller. However, between a GDC-intended talk from PS5 architect Mark Cerny and recent praise for the system's storage coming from Epic's Tim Sweeney, the PS5 is looking interesting on paper.
Despite concerns over the effects of the coronavirus on production and logistics, which played a part in delaying a major Sony first-party game for a few weeks, the console manufacturer seems confident the PS5 will make the holiday 2020 window.
In the meantime, we have a good chunk of samurai action to enjoy. Ghost of Tsushima is due out for the PlayStation 4 on July 17.
